First of all excuse the poor pics. The entertainment room as we call it is roughly 22x20x8 and has has the following pc:
ASUS P5G41C-M LGA 775 Intel G41 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz
Thermalright U120eXtrem1366RT R-C 120mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler
OCZ Obsidian Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
RAIDMAX ICECUBE ATX-015B Black Aluminum MicroATX Desktop Computer Case
CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W Power supply
Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV125-S2/30GB 2.5" 30GB SATA II
Western Digital 500GB
PNY Verto 9600GT Graphics card
Linkysys wireless card...DVD burner and card reade
It feeds a 50" plasma tv through HDMI,a Sony receiver through a toslink digital cable feeding 6 Klipsch speakers which consist of 2 15" drivers and 4 12" drivers and horn mid and tweeters,with a 1000 watt self powerd Velodyne 18" sub. The pc has 4 TB's of movies connected to it. In the room but not XBMC related is my 9,000 LP collection, a moded Nintenod Wii with 350 games on an external drive, an Xbox360 with Kinect, and a DTV DVR that is SWIM connected to all 5 bedrooms.
The second room is the living room and has a 50" Panasonic plasma connected to another moded wii, xbox360 and a Compaq PC with these specs:
ASUS Micro-ATX- NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 AMD Athlon 2700
2 gigs ddr2 PC2-6400 (800 MHz)
250 gig hard drive
3 bedrooms have 40" plasmas with the same Compaq PC's as the living room.
The kids are slobs so I didnt bother with pictures.
Everything is tied together via a Linksys wireless router and wireless pci cards throughout.
Theres also a computer in the kitchen with a 22" dell monitor.

I'm in the middle of a movie room remodel and will be going with natural colors very similar to yours. You've reassured me that it will look great

Juanflaco Wrote:Great looking room, nut. Have you considered throwing a projector in the mix? That wall is crying out for it!+1. That room would really light up (no pun) with a projector, just move the speakers a bit farther apart and enjoy. BTW, does your neck hurt form looking up at the screen? My setup is at eye level, but I always wondered if people experienced neck fatigue with the TV mounted higher.

Juanflaco: I've thought about that; could be done since the reconfiguration of the suspended ceiling and low-light in the basement would definitely allow for it. Not a real big priority at the moment to be honest, but would definitely be cool to have an automated screen roll-down for movie time.
+ I can also imagine a conversation something like this:
Me: 'I'd like install a projector in the basement. I'll need a 1080p projector, motorized screen, associated cabling and several days of kid-free time to sort it all out'
Wife:'So let me get this straight; you want to spend several thousand dollars more to cover up a 2-year old, $2000 TV'
Superorb: you don't notice that TV height at all to be honest...it's down-tilted slightly which you can't see, and at approx 10-12' from the TV feet its a non-issue.
Item I'm changing here shortly is a different entertainment center. The sub is currently in a shitty spot...Bass sounds wonderful on the other side of the basement, but don't notice as much in the primary chair. A narrow, taller ent center will allow me to throw the sub front and center plus some additional tweaking.
